Digital Embroidery

I learned how to use a digital embroidery machine a couple of years ago, and thought it would be nice to keep an archive of my experiments. Currently I’m the proud owner of a Brother Innovis NV800-E, a domestic machine (on which I did all the embroidery for the Bell Labs project), and use a combination of PE Design 6 and PEMbroider software (a process that I wrote about here).
